|Drugs: Costs and Consequences:
Opening Eyes to the Damage Drugs Cause
September 28, 2016 to January 16, 2017
Most Americans are unaware of the science behind the damaging effects of drugs on the mind and body, or of the other tremendous costs associated with the production, sale, and use of drugs. The costs to society–estimated at more than $180 billion a year–are borne by all of us in some way.
Despite the fact that the vast majority of Americans are not drug users, we pay for users’ lost productivity, their health care, criminal justice costs, child welfare costs, and the impact their drug use has on our own health and safety.
This exhibit is designed to open eyes to the science behind drug addiction and the countless costs of drugs–to individuals, American society, and the world–and to provide food for thought on how each and every one of us can make a difference.
Please be advised that this exhibit contains content that may not be suitable for young children. Parental guidance is recommended.
